Help Us Fight COVID-19
Our Board of Supervisors has reactivated the Disaster Relief Fund. Due to the enormous and varied needs facing the community and the health care systems at this time, the county has established two separate funds. The Emergency Fund will provide needed services to those directly affected by the pandemic. The Recovery Fund will be used to purchase personal protective equipment and other supplies to assist those fighting the pandemic. You can also donate personal protective equipment.
